State of the art CCTV and vigilant staff?

We are constantly assured that any children straying onto Hafod landfill will not be harmed because the state of the art CCTV and vigilant staff will spot them instantly and apprehend them.

This morning us eagle eyed protestors noticed immediately that the lifebuoy was missing off the pole by the lagoon, but the site staff appear to be blissfully unaware on their morning checks.

Well done!

There appears to be an awful lot of coincidences around Hafod landfill just lately. We were told the infestation of flies we suffered had nothing to do with the landfill, and it was a regional problem. I suppose the fact that Bangor and Hafod road has never ever flooded like this before is an unfortunate coincidence too.

I was one of the people that started this blog because the campaign to stop Mersey Waste dumping in Hafod needed a voice on the internet. That voice has, sadly, been hijacked by two groups of small-minded individuals who seem to think that petty abuse is its purpose.

Health and safety MWH style.

Just a few feet from the entrance to Hafod Landfill, obscured from vision by a bank of soil is this lagoon. The lagoon has slippery steep sides and contains deep dirty water, so MWH have taken precautionary measures to deal with this potential hazard to local children.

And here they are, two lifebuoys held on sticks.

Most responsible companies would have a security guard on the gate or fence the lagoon off to prevent access by children but not “our neighbours” they buy two rubber rings!

Mr Rob Allan (managing director of MWH) reads this blog, so come on Mr Allan tell the people of Johnstown and Ruabon the cost of these lifebuoys and explain why the safety of our children are not worth more?
